Understood.  However it's not possible for us to change the structure
of APR 1.2.

I'd enthusiastically support a richer macro to express a data-by-call
dereference, but that's not possible until APR 1.3 at earliest due
to the versioning rules.  Since 1.3 is in development, that's the best
version to target for such a change.
